degrees in critical science, technology, engineering and mathematics fields. in the u.s., 76% of all registered -- from the top, from the top 10% producing. they come from foreign students. foreign students here in the u.s. who then become inventors. these foreign-born inventors are driving economic prosperity with the consequences of their background in these hard sciences. in our current system, we welcome foreign students to the united states. we provide them the world's best education, and then we send them home so that they can compete against us. and, frankly, this makes no sense. america's current involvement in asia must not be confined by the same old approaches that may have once served a purpose, but for now woefully outdated. indeed, we must harness the full potential of american ingenuity to address the spectrum of challenges we have before us. and this is out build samsung in the aftermath of the korean war. and much like the mythical phoenix rising from the ashes, south korea and samsung are today truly world class. together, we can ensure that the future legacy of ame

to beat people back from the door that wanted to take science and engineering. you can take that talent and apply it to something worthy of your investment in time and energy. >> you think it is fair to say the push to the moon, interest in nasa all in some way led to the computer and information revolution. >> there are people that say that would have happened any way. there are certain facts that are undeniable. the search to minimize electronics. no one was saying, i want to carry a tv in my hip pocket. it is a nonthought. when you launch something this to space, electronics of any matter, weight matters. it is costly to put it in to orbit. the minturization of electronics got a jolt of interest by the early space age. then once you see it is miniaturized, all of a sudden a new world of consumer electro c electronics opens up that was unimagined and dreamt of bmplt so, yes. in the urge to find an economic justification is honorable but not the biggest reason to do this. the reason is the culture it innovates foosters an invasion nation. everyone is thinking about it. innovation beco
a colleague here in congress brush off the warnings of science about climate change, saying, "god's still up there," implying that there's no need to worry about climate change. well, if god is still up there, what better use of the gifts of moral reasoning that we have been given as his people than to protect his creation and one another from harm? madam president, as we sing in the old hymn, "field and forest, veil and mountain, flowering meadow, flashing sea, chanting bird and flowing fountain call us to rejoice in thee." we are each called in our own way to wake up and to do the right thing. i yield the floor. mr. nelson: madam president? the presiding officer: the senator from florida. mr. nelson: madam president, i just want to comment on the senator from rhode island's comments. first of all, i know it's so heartfelt and so genuine, and i want to thank him for that. and i want to thank him from approaching it from a faith-based standpoint about this fragile ecosystem that we live on called planet earth. and he's brought a perspective with that chart that he had of the earth that it is
, however, the public generally views these space activities as little more than interesting science projects if they know about them at all. yet without them americans' lives would fundamentally change. let me explain with a few brief examples. gps is with the internet one of only two global utilities. it facilitates, for example, having emergency response vehicles reach their destinations by the shortest routes, potentially saving lives, for transoceanic air travel to be safer and more efficient because planes can fly closer together. and if the new satellite-reliant air traffic control system is implemented, reduce jet fuel consumption by one million barrels annually saving both money and the environment, and it saves the trucking industry an estimated $53 billion annually in fuel costs and better fleet management. in addition to the economic benefits of space which are vital to the national interest, there are also direct security implications. politically the recent meteor right that hit the russian yules with the force of an atomic bomb was a stark wake-up call regarding threat
that a computer glitch is putting the mars rover "curiosity" science experiments on a bit of a hold right now. nasa says it is still in contact with its good friend rover up there and hopes to have it fully functioning this week but it comes after "curiosity" made the most significant discovery yet that by confirming the red planet had the ability to possibly support some forms of life. that is what they're always looking for up there on the red planet. casey stiegel is checking out all of this in dallas. why do they think they believe life could have existed up there? >> reporter: hey, martha, good morning. biased primarily on the existence of water. scientists long thought it was on the red planet but only in the form of ice and now "curiosity" is essentially proving that theory wrong. they have discovered a ancient network of rivers up there have dried up but areas were formed by running water, possibly more than three billion years ago? the rover has been drilling down into the martian surface as well and finding elements like carbon, nitrogen and oxygen, things that living organisms need
sensationalism than science. >> welcome back the time is 8:29. right now, contra costa county fire crews are working to contain a house fire on apple islabethel islande two are far broke out early this morning at 1480 taylor st.. you can see where it is happening here on the map. crews say they're having a hard time containing the fire. >> to get more news faster, let us turn to one are so reporters kron 4 jackie sissel live on bethel island. >> it it did take five hour to finally get this thing under control according to contra costa county fire chief. around 230 this morning there received a call on the 1400 block of taylor wrote on bethel island. on a single story structure fire. >> when they arrived they found a single story fire fully involved. the fire was next door to a second house. ashley to a house next door to the fire. some power lines went down when they start to fight the fire causing the firefighters to back away from the fire completely. at that point that is when the fire spread to the second home. you can see the damage to that haul almost completely destroyed. there wa
tranquil. we converted our desert into a garden. it was achieved by our people and the potential of science. what we have done, mr. president, can be done all over the middle east, as we have rightly said tonight. israel is described as a start-up nation. the middle east can become a start-up region. dear president, you noted in your address today that peace is the greatest hope for the human being. i share your vision. your call to reopen the way for the implementation of the two-state solution agreed by all of us. as you said, a jewish state, israel, an arab state, palestine. if i'm not wrong, next year seats our prime minister, he was just reelected. he opened his address by reiterating his commitment to the two-state solution. dear friends, i have seen in my life i have the right to believe that peace is attainable. as you felt today, i know, this is the deep conviction of our people. with our resolve and your support, dear barack obama, we shall win and it will happen. mr. president, i'm privileged to bestow upon you the medal of distinction. it was recommended by a committee of seven
a world where science and technology is created to build and not destroy. they want to live in peace, free from terror and threats that are so often directed at the israeli people. that's the future that they deserve. that's the vision that is shared by both our nations. and that is shimon peres's life work. and mr. president, michelle and i have such fond memories of your visit to the white house last spring when i was honored to present you with america's highest civilian honor, our medal of freedom. and that medal was a tribute to your extraordinary life which you held virtually every position in the in the israeli government. today was an opportunity to benefit from the president's perspective on a whole range of topics. from the historic changes taking place across the region nuclear perils of iran and perils of peace between the israelis and the palestinians and the promise of our digital age and i should note one of the advantages of talking to president per rest is, not only does he have astonishing vision but he is also a pretty practical-minded politician and consistently has goo
' education. those are our investments in science and research to help power our economy. those are our investments to help modernize our infrastructure. they cut transportation by 15% when we have 15% unemployment in the construction industry. so mr. chairman, the american people rejected the kind of uncompromising lopsided approach that we see once again presented here in the house. the same thing we've seen for the last three years as if we hadn't even had a debate last fall. now, in the democratic alternative, we focus on the main issue right now and in the future. we don't only want strong economic growth in the future, we want to see accelerated job growth right now. you know, we've seen some momentum in the jobs market in the last couple months. but the republican budget, it will put the brakes on that growth. now, the chairman of the budget committee can quote what economists all he wants and there are economists that say it will do this or won't do this or will do that, but we have an empire in the congress, we have a refugee. they are called the congressional budget office. th
and investment create jobs for both our peoples. our partnerships in science and medicine and health bring us closer to new cures, harness new energy, and have helped transform us into high-tech hubs of our global economy. we stand together because we share a commitment to helping our fellow human beings around the world. when the earth shakes and the floods come, our doctors and rescuers reach out to help. when people are suffering from africa to asia, we partner to fight disease and overcome hunger. we stand together because peace must come to the holy land, for even as we are clear-eyed about the difficulties, we will never lose sight of the vision of an israel at peace with its neighbors. so as i begin this visit, let me say as clearly as i can, the united states of america stands with the state of israel because it is in our fundamental national security interest to stand with israel. it makes us both stronger. it makes us both more prosperous, and it makes the world a better place. that's why -- [ applause ] that's why the united states was the very first nation to recognize the state o
